Spring Flower Clip

I figure it may be about time to write something about crochet.  :)   Maybe a free pattern??? 

Spring Flower Clip

Use 5mm crochet hook & worsted weight yarn
1 Button & alligator clip

Rd 1 - Ch 3, join with sl st
Rd 2 - Ch 1, 6 sc in circle, join with sl in first sc
Rd 3 - Ch 1, Working in front loop of each st, *sc, hdc, 3dc, hdc, sc in next st. Sl st next st* Repeat 4 times to create 5 petals.  Join with sl in first sc.
Rd 4 - Working in back loop of each st (behind Rd 3), *sc, ch 3, sc* behind each petal to create 5 loops behind each petal.
Rd 5 - *sc, hdc, dc, 3tc, dc, hdc, sc* in each loop to create 5 petals.  Join with sl st to first sc.
Fasten off, weave in ends.
Hot Glue the button in the center of the flower.
Hot Glue an alligator clip to the back of the flower.
(I wrap each side of the alligator clip with yarn and hot glue it in place as I'm wrapping.  This keeps the alligator clip from slipping in the hair when being worn.)
They even look adorable on adults!

I am in NO way a professional pattern writer so if this is hard to understand....  Oops!!  I'm sorry!!  haha...  I'll accept any constructive criticism you may have :)  

Have a TERRIFIC day!
